I have an abiding resentment for the scum-sucking bastards who have worked relentlessly for at least the past 20 years to get large numbers of British citizens to become totally obsessed about immigration. In doing so, they have actively and deliberately brought about the UK's imminent departure from the largest, most constructive and progressive mutually beneficial association of nation-states on this planet, which in turn will cause decades of economic hardship, detriment to our National Health Service and social upheaval.
And for what? Some twisted ideology that has at its core the hatred of the other, the outsider. These people have in the process arguably caused the murder of a member of parliament on the street by a fascist race-obsessed fanatic.
Immigration is, in my view, unequivocally a very good thing for this country. As well as contributing to the economy, supporting vital public services, starting successful business enterprises and creating employment, immigrants to the UK have enormously enriched our culture and society with colour, taste, and joy.
In respect of the EU, the free movement of individuals that facillitates people coming to the UK from other EU member states and Britons going freely to those other parts of the EU, is arguably not technically immigration at all, but rather the product of a mutually beneficial reciprocal voluntary agreement between member states in an alliance of nations.
If concentrations of immigrants in particular areas lead to pressure on infrastructure and services in those areas and associated tensions, the onus is on government to ensure that the appropriate funding is directed to those areas to ensure that schools, hospitals, doctors' surgeries etc are able to cope with the pressures - the answer is not for government to seek simply to ban people from coming to the UK. The last Labour government had such a scheme in place, but the Tories scrapped it
as soon as they came to power.
